Cat Ba archipelago sits alongside the Hai Phong region and consists of 367 small islands, in which Cat Ba island (also known as Ngoc island) is the most popular with tourists. Although it has been known about for some time Cat Ba still retains much natural beauty thanks to its isolated location. Temperatures remain at a comfortable average of only 25°C  within the area, meaning travelers have the optimum climate for exploring the many beautiful beaches and primeval forests. Thrill-seeking tourists can also try out the many high-adrenaline activities. If you have the opportunity to visit Cat Ba Island, you must experience some of the exhilarating activities below.

1. Trekking In The Cat Ba National Park


Cat Ba National Park was established in 1986. After a re-arrangement of the park boundaries in 2006, the park now covers 161km²  including inshore waters and mangrove-covered tidal zones. Cat Ba was Vietnam’s first national park to include both terrestrial and marine ecosystems.

Take the scenic, invigorating one-hour ascent to Ngu Lam, the highest point of the trek in Cat Ba national park. Here you will have the opportunity to take in the tranquil landscape for all that it is, painted across a canvas of green mountains. This is a place for those who want to find peace and quiet after a long journey as well as see Cat Ba’s astonishing beauty.

Moreover, you can visit the Hospital cave – which was used as a hospital during the Vietnamese War. The location is close to Cat Ba National Park so you can easily get there and experience its historic ambiance.
